EVO.Live, Fairlight's new digital audio mixing system designed for on-air and live productions, is making its European debut at IBC.
The first console has already been installed at Catholic TV Network in Boston, where it is broadcasting live TV to more than 14 million homes worldwide.
Based on Fairlight’s audio processing and control surface technologies, the EVO.Live console offers integrated HD video and multitrack audio recording.
Fairlight also reported that it has the ability to easily switch between live and post production modes so that staff engineers can use the desk for audio sweetening when it isn't needed for on-air applications. “EVO.Live is truly unique,” said Fairlight’s CTO, Tino Fibaek. “EVO.Live customers will get a much better return on their investment because they are effectively getting two consoles in one.”
The console — with a modular design and a dual-operator configuration — uses Fairlight's integrated control surface technology featuring Picture Keys that self-label instantly for each task performed. It also incorporates Fairlight’s FPGA-based Crystal Core engine.
Features include surround sound mixing capabilities, off-line preparation via laptop, a built-in sound effects cart machine and control extensions to lighting systems, third-party DAWs and sound library databases.
EVO.Live is available in different stand-alone chassis sizes, as well as surface-mounted and tabletop configurations, from 12 to 60 faders.
